Method 525.2 describes the procedure to determine a full suite of low concentration semi-volatile organic compounds in drinking water using solid phase extraction (SPE) or liquid–solid extraction (LSE) techniques. The City of Fort Worth, Water Department implemented an automated SPE process for the analysis of semi-volatiles by EPA Method 525.2 using the Atlantic® C18 solid phase extraction disk. Ethyl acetate, methanol and water were used to condition the Atlantic C18 disk prior to the extraction step. The extraction solvents used were a 1:1 mixture of methylene chloride and ethyl acetate. Extracts were then analyzed by GC/MS using a splitless injection technique.

US EPA method 550.1 is a method used by regulatory agencies to determine PAH’s in drinking water by liquid-solid extraction (LSE) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).1 The method outlines the steps needed to perform extractions of PAHs from drinking water sources and finished drinking water; as well as the quality control (QC) program requirements to ensure the method is operated under control.
Use of Biotage automated sample preparation products allows users to achieve the precise and consistent data needed to comply with EPA method 550.1 QC specifications as stated in method, section 10.3.2., for Initial Demonstration of Capability (IDC); while at the same time, streamlining laboratory practices to increase lab productivity.
